Top Ten Characters Who Remind Me Of Myself Or Someone I Know In Real Life
AKA The Most Challenging List Yet
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. Anna from Anna and the French Kiss
I definitely wouldn't say Anna and I are exactly alike, but I think we share a lot of the same characteristics. Not to mention, I loved it when she went off on her dad's writing because she sounded exactly like I do when I rant about stuff like that!
2. Sara from When it Happens
We spell our names the same, we're both workaholics, our favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip, we love John Mayer, and we both dream about living in New York. (Or in my case, a city in general.) So yes, I felt we had a decent amount in common.
3. Daniel in The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
My older brother and I have a bigger age gap than Mara and Daniel, but he still reminds me of my brother in that he's always looking out for her. And he teases her a decent amount, too, but that's what brothers do. (:
4. Steph from How to Be Popular
Unfortunately, Steph reminds me a little of my middle-school self. I definitely wanted to be popular. I think most kids do at some point in their lives. Luckily, I had a revelation much like Steph's and was able to overcome that.
5. Angela, Zoe, and Maddie from ttyl
Again, back to the middle school days! Back then I had two close friends and we fancied ourselves a lot like the protagonists. In hindsight, I don't know how true that is, but it was fun all the same.
6. Viola from Viola in Reel Life
When I read this, I remember relating to her because she had a passion. Even though mine is more with books than with video cameras, it still struck a chord.
7. Miles from Looking for Alaska
Despite the whole gender-difference, I really connected with Miles. He's maybe a little awkward, trying to find meaning in life, and he's got a good (if a bit crazy) set of friends.
That's all I can come up with! Most characters display traits that I relate to certain friends and family members, but none are exact copies, so this is the best I can do. (And while I may be able to come up with a few more, I don't want to insult anybody. (;)
